The Dark Knight returns in the first game to do him justice in his more than 20 year history in video games. Not based on any specific comic book or movie it takes all the best ideas and visuals from all of Batman's many incarnations to create a unique spin on one of pop culture's greatest icons.
Arkham Asylum becomes the backdrop for Batman's most dangerous challenge
|Killer Croc has never looked more imposing or been more dangerous|
|Batman must discover the deadly secrets behind The Joker's masterplan|
|Stalk the minor criminals like prey and strike from the dark when they least expect it|
The entire game takes place within Arkham Asylum, where The Joker and his allies have overtaken the facility and set a trap for Batman. This is no simplistic beat 'em-up though, with Batman forced to prove his status as the world's greatest detective with a number of complex forensic-style puzzles.
When it does come to combat though you must still use your cunning as much as your fists, as you stalk unaware enemies and distract them with the bodies or screams of their cronies. With believable physics, superb graphics and a serious adult tone this is more than just another superhero tie-in.Key Features
- Rogue's gallery: Battle all of Batman's greatest foes, including The Joker, Harley Quinn, Killer Croc.
- Final Knight: Gain experience from fights and puzzles to improve and add to Batman's abilities via a role-playing game style skill tree that lets you customise the Dark Knight as you see fit.
- Dynamic duo: Target the most dangerous foes from the shadows with a special takedown move and then move in to stun or attack opponents with the game's intuitive combo system.
- Detective comics: Batman must use his brain as well as his brawn, with CSI-style puzzles solved by an array of bat-gadgets including a multi-use interactive visor.
- Animated avenger: An original story written by comic book and Batman: The Animated Series legend Paul Dini -- plus Kevin Conroy as the voice of Batman and Mark Hamill as The Joker.
Only found founded in 2004, this London based developer's first game was the well received first person shoot 'em-up Urban Chaos: Riot Response for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox. Their first game for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 (and PC) is comic book license Batman: Arkham Asylum.

The main part of the game focuses on one particular story, the Joker taking over Arkham asylm, however as you progress through the game you meet other well known super villains such as the Scarecrow and Bane. I have played around 8 hours into the main story mode so far and I know that I still have to meet posion Ivy and Killer Croc, as well as beating Harley Quinn and the Joker so the depth of the main stroyline is immense. Add in the additional challenge of solving and finding all 240 of the Riddlers challenge, which in itself is really hard. I can see me replaying through the main mission to batman quite a few times.
As well as the story mode you are also presented with a challenge mode, which gives you the options of beating other people online through score tables. These challenges vary from beating up a select few thugs to a timed challenge being stealthy and taking out goons with guns. If you are quite into trying to top the tables on line this is a great addition to the game itself.
Graphics and sound in the game are fantastic, and sometimes it does present a distinct eerie feel to it when meeting some villans (I dont wanna spoil too much for you).
The gameply itself is certainly original. The only other game I could really compare this to is Metal Gear solid. You do have to think how you can sneak up on bad guys or formulate a plan to take out several people with guns.Read more ›
I won't go too much into the storyline; much of that is everywhere on the internet, and also in these Amazon reader reviews. Rather, I will talk about the many things the game does right, and also the one or two small things it doesn't quite nail.
First and foremost, it must be said that the Batman portrayed in Batman: Arkham Asylum is perhaps one of the best renderings of the iconic hero outside of the comics and graphic novels. Strong-willed, resourceful, forward-thinking, brooding, supercool...everything that makes a good Batman is there, brought to the fore and exploited by the game designers with amazing results. Add to that Kevin Conroy's tone-perfect voice acting, and you have a Batman that stands out in his own right as one of the franchise's finest embodiments of the character.
The same can be said about the lead villain, The Joker. There is something so charismatic, so appealing about this Joker that his cut scenes are an absolute joy to watch...you can't help but be mesmerized at his movements and his crazy laughter. And although the plot is pretty flat and standard madman-hatches-a-crazy-plan fare, this Joker takes the scenario to a new level simply because you believe that this character is, in fact, completely insane in a chillingly calculating way.
Other villains that make their appearances are treated with similar respect.Read more ›
So the game manages to capture your interest right away, with the opening cutscene a great introduction to the place the entire game is set; ancient, eerie nuthouse Arkham Asylum. Batman is delivering the Joker back to his cell, but something isn't right. The Warden has been taken prisoner and it's up to the Caped Crusader to save the Asylum and thwart Joker's plan. The player is thrown right into action, with the first fight allowing you to practice the simple, three-button combat system of Attack, Counter and Stun. Experimenting with different combos and freeflow fighting tactics is fun for a while, but eventually it does get repetitive.Read more ›
